When I was a kid an idiot friend threw some .22's in the fire. We all took cover, and listened to the pops. I asked him "how many were there?" He didn't know. That was the end of our camp fire for the night.

Probably wouldn’t have done any harm, the brass might fragment, but the bullet is going nowhere.

Yes. The casings were blown out. A rifle just limits the direction the explosion can take. It was educational although I was very cranky with him at the time. 🤣 And we didn't get to check the fire out till the morning when it was dead.
